Next week’s WWE SmackDown episode will air on FS1.
WWE confirmed the schedule change during tonight’s SmackDown on FOX show. SmackDown is being moved to FS1 next Friday because FOX is scheduled to air the college football Pac-12 Championship game.
A one-hour new episode of Talking Smack is scheduled to air on FS1 after SmackDown goes off the air next Friday night. A SmackDown replay will then air at 11pm ET.
Next week’s SmackDown will be the go-home show for the WWE TLC pay-per-view. For the show, they announced Bianca Belair vs. Bayley and The Street Profit vs. Dolph Ziggler and Rober Roode for the Smackdown Tag Team Championship.
The title match was announced after Ziggler defeated Montez Ford in a singles match on tonight’s SmackDown. Roode and Ziggler also defeated Ford and Angelo Dawkins in a non-title match back on the November 27 SmackDown show.
Bayley and Bianca Belair have been feuding for a few weeks now, and tonight’s SmackDown featured a backstage segment where Belair taunted Bayley for being better than she is.
